Rangers goalkeeper Kieran Wright has joined Airdrie on loan.

The 25-year-old will spend the season with the Championship club.

Wright, who has played for Dumbarton, Partick Thistle and Albion Rovers, will rival Murray Johnston for the No1 spot.

The goalkeeper - signed at Rangers since 2015 - will join up with his new team next week.

Airdrie coach  David Hutton said of the signing: “I’ve worked with Kieran before, he’s a hungry goalkeeper who was very keen to join the club when he heard of our interest.

“He’s good with his feet, and a great shot-stopper. You don’t spend that long at Rangers if you haven’t got a bit about you!

“I’m really looking forward to working with him - and I’m delighted that I’ve got two top goalies competing for the jersey.”
